Air Tourism: Ryanair launches 15 new routes to Morocco

Date:

Ryanair will be the main provider of international seats to Morocco during the 2023 winter season. Indeed, of the 6 million international seats planned to Morocco for the next winter season, Ryanair will operate a third of them, or 2 million. Which corresponds to growth of 29% compared to the same period of 2022.

15 new routes will be set up by the company from this next winter season, they will concern Agadir, Essaouira, Ouarzazate, Rabat and Marrakech and will come from France, Germany, Spain, Poland, United Kingdom and Sweden.
For Adel El Fakir, director general of the Moroccan National Tourism Office, “this rise in power of Ryanair in Morocco reinforces the air promotion strategy led by Morocco and supported by the supervisory ministry which aims to increase the number of international point-to-point direct lines. Ryanair is therefore a strategic ally for our sector. Marrakech will remain the main Moroccan destination in Ryanair’s portfolio with 42% of the company’s total capacity and 37% growth (556,000 seats in winter 2022 compared to 761,000 in winter 2023).

The largest increases concern the airports of Ouarzazate (+206%), Essaouira (+76%) followed by Rabat (+40%), Fez and Agadir with 13% each. The airports of Marrakech, Fez and Agadir are host to the 12 Ryanair aircraft based in Morocco. Ryanair will thus connect Morocco to 12 tourist-producing markets. The leading market being France with 31% of capacity, followed by Spain 24% and Germany 11%. The greatest increases are noted from distant markets such as Poland (332%), Germany (+74%) and Ireland (+60%).
